Defendants in Redding homicide case ordered to stand trial
REDDING, Calif. - The three defendants involved in the murder of Joshua Ahlberg on September 20 were ordered to stand trial Monday for first-degree murder and related charges in connection to the death of Ahlberg and the attempted murder of his roommate, Coleman Yount.
According to the Shasta County DA's Office, the charges include multiple special allegations and enhancements. Brooklyn Aubry Hill, 20, Isaiah Williams, 19, and Devin Dashawn Sutton Wilson, 21, are all being held without bail.
The Redding Police Department was called to the homicide in the 1200 block of Heavenly Oak Lane in the early morning hours on September 20. Officers who first arrived on scene said they made contact with a frantic victim, later identified as Coleman Yount, who stated he had escaped from his home as he and his roommate, identified as Ahlberg, were being robbed at gunpoint.
When officers entered the home they found Ahlberg in one of the rooms, dead.
Later, information was obtained that the suspects were possibly staying at a home on Willis Street in Redding. At approximately 1:00 p.m. on September 20, officers observed a vehicle leaving the area of the home on Willis Street.
A traffic stop was conducted at the intersection of Market Street and Benton Drive and two of the three were taken into custody without incident. The Redding Police Department SWAT Team served a search warrant at the Willis Street home a short time later and the third suspect was taken into custody.
